About Our Blog…

Once upon a time, we could discuss current events and issues affecting our City on social media with our friends & neighbors. But all that changed when Dean Massey was elected as Alderman. He blocked and excluded many of our Germantown residents from Facebook conversations while promoting one person’s blog as an authority on all things Germantown. But we think it’s important to hear more than one person’s opinion. We think it’s important to get information from a variety of sources. So, we created a forum to give a voice to Germantown citizens who don’t have a blog and who have been silenced in Facebook discussions about our City.
